COVID-19 Outbreaks on Units 4400 and 5100 at Horizon’s The Moncton Hospital

COVID-19 outbreaks have been declared on the rehabilitation unit – Unit 4400 – and the family practice and geriatric unit – Unit 5100 – at Horizon’s The Moncton Hospital (TMH).

Horizon’s Designated Support Person (DSP) program will be temporarily suspended on these units and Horizon’s existing visitor restrictions remain in place.

During this time, there will be no patient admissions or transfers to and from these units. COVID-19 testing for patients and staff is underway and Horizon is following enhanced Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) guidelines.

These temporary measures are in place to ensure the health and safety of our patients and clients, staff, physicians, and the community.

These COVID-19 outbreaks are in addition to the outbreak on unit 4600 which was declared on Nov. 22.

Visitation restrictions remain in place for other units at TMH. Please visit our website for more details on our visitor guidelines.

We understand it is difficult for families and friends to be separated from their loved ones during this period. We encourage people to use technology to connect with our patients. Our staff are working diligently to provide care and comfort to our patients during these outbreaks.
